Dwarf Blue Vates Kale November 8, 2016
Reviewer: Mackenzie Z. from Penfield, NY  
Dwarf Blue Vates Kale is my favorite variety of kale that Fruition has.

When we grew Vates Kale in 2016, we thought our transplants were looking a little weak. I had left them in the greenhouse too long.  Low and behold after transplanting them, they thrived. We still have about 10 of the Kale Vates plants growing in our garden now (11/8).

The plant itself is very hardy. Surviving the summers heat and the early winter frost. Vates kale is also pest resistant.  We had a couple Japanese beetles, but hardly any damage. The plant produces a good amount of leaves.

The kale leaves are lush and hardy. I love using them for salads, slaws, sautéed, and stewed in soups. The leaves are sweet and taste best freshly harvested.
